Re: rc-300 unsupported format on 16bit/44.1 stereo files

The thing that springs to mind to check is the bit rate; your sounds might be 16-bit 44.1kHz, but are they 128-bit, 192-bit, constant bit rate, variable bit rate, etc etc ? That might be what's tripping the RC-300 up. (No experience of this with the RC-300, but have been bitten with it on older MP3 players and such like devices...)

hey Jay!
i recently got a B stock RC300 since ive been asked to do some solo gigs where i also have to make people dance
so i started loading some samples and came across the same problem,the RC300 is very tempermental with samples just like the Jamman Stereo!
I made sure i convert all to 16 Bit, stereo 44.1KHZ but not all of them got supported and im still trying to find out what the problem is
i also came across a problem when you turn single track on and assign all tracks to be cleared by the loop FX switch
the RC300 crashes and freezes and you have to turn the unit off and restart it,bad bad!
i did a brief video posted the problem here


can you try this and tells me if it happens to you as well?
i updated the firmware to the latest v 1.03 before doing this
I called Roland here in Germany and they claim my unit is deffect and that the motherboard is most likely damaged
si ive sent it back but im still curious if thats really the case!

Hi, any RC-300 experts here?

Using an RC-300 with files uploaded from computer only, as a playback machine only.
All files have the required 16-bit, 44.1 KHz, stereo, WAV standard and are named correctly. However, the RC-300 only plays some files and reports the majority as "unsupported format".

Any insights are very welcome as well as offlist messages to jayrope@gmail.com, as i only get a daily digest from here.

Thank you so much!
